2012 has a bunch of movies I'm itching to see...and these are just the SF/Fantasy ones
Some information ripped from io9.comThe Raven

One of America's greatest presidents is revealed as a slayer of our greatest monsters, in this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's book.G.I. Joe: Retaliation
This time, Bruce Willis plays the eponymous Joe. And the master of disguise, Zartan, is trying to take over the world's leaders. Also with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.The Dark Knight Rises
The conclusion of Chris Nolan's epic Batman trilogy. Bane demolishes football fields, Catwoman spouts Occupy Wall Street rhetoric, and Bruce Wayne gets pretty messed up.
While we're on the subject of comic-book heroes...Amazing Spider-Man
In a year full of big event movies, this could be a surprising standout — or, it could just be a weak movie with a great trailer.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Peter Jackson returns to Middle Earth, in the first half of an adaptation of Tolkien's classic quest novel.

Brad Pitt stars in an adaptation of Max Brooks' novel, playing a United Nations employee who races around the world trying to stop a zombie pandemic.Iron Sky
The thrilling "Nazis on the Moon" film that we've been drooling over. Coming out April 4 in Finland, and hopefully sometime later in the U.S. and god knows when in the UK.
To paraphrase STJ...Muthaf*cking Space Nazis On The Moon!
This time-travel movie, directed by Brick's Rian Johnson, features Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a hitman who has to deal with his own future self (Bruce Willis).Total Recall
Underworld's Len Wiseman directs a remake of the Paul Verhoeven film, in which we never go to Mars. Instead, the nations of Euromerica and New Shanghai battle, and Colin Farrell is caught in the middle.Dredd
Mega City One's greatest lawman finally gets a serious film, with Karl Urban as a Dredd who never takes his helmet off. Sarah Connor and Cersei Lannister, aka Lena Headey, is the villain.
That'll hold you....and yes, I know they're mostly popcorn movies
